Needs more buttwipe/hip depth. You are falling over to the left. It will probably feel like you are falling more to the right/open when you get it.

Aha. I see what you mean if I lean against a wall and do it. It really does feel like falling to the right of the teepad to stay against the wall.

It's too snowy here to play so I'm really hoping that working through these drills is reprogramming my throw.

This is hard! I spent my breaks today working on this and it’s a very different feeling and move. It really is the gas pedal move and feels very backwards in orientation. Not quite there yet but closer and I now better understand why McBeth and Eagle sometimes look so low and crouchy when they throw hyzers.

it is a difficult balancing act!! im in the same boat of trying to lean over.

this angle of kevin jones really well shows off his balance/technique and helps give me a visual reference

I love this video.

What's crazy to me is watching GG after Kev. His left foot plants at like a 45 degree angle but he continues to move straight at the camera. He really gets all his momentum from the right foot push and then just balances on the left on the way back down into the right foot plant.

I think I need to focus more on the right foot stopping my momentum fully like these boys. Probably use less momentum to start with.

Workin’ a little every day on keeping the butt against the invisible wall and the gas pedal left foot. With all the talk about the Brinster hop and vertical vs horizontal I tried a hop again. It feels more natural.

Left leg looks good. Right leg needs to firm up/post and stop bending into the plant. Crush the Can, not your leg.

I know we’ve talked a bit about this before but is a little knee flex acceptable or is even this something to avoid?

It will flex some. You need to plantar flex your foot/feet - extend your ankle/s into the plant. You are landing too flat footed/dorsiflexed/retracted and spinning out on your heel instead of actually sticking your foot firmly into the ground and pivoting from the swing momentum.

Start in a standstill position and push your front foot into ground to push your body back away like walking or running. You should land mirrored the way you take off. Start with your front foot slightly pointed open to push away, the foot should only turn back beyond 90 if you have turned the rest of your body further back.

Ok I see what you’re saying. I worked through it a bit here.
